one bistro is nothing without volunteers who give of their time and talent—the heart behind our mission.
While we continually pray for volunteers to help make good happen in the community by being the hands and feet of Jesus, all are welcome regardless of faith. Our volunteers fall into two categories:
- Those who volunteer in order to provide a meal for themselves and/or their families.
- Those who volunteer to help as staff and assist in providing meals to those in need.
We benefit from the time and talent that our volunteers have to offer. Volunteers should be 16 years of age, although families or organizations who have younger children, may serve together with adult supervision. Prior to volunteering, please review and sign the following policies, and turn in when volunteering for the first time.
To volunteer, click below to sign up online as a Daily or Community Meal Volunteer in Miamisburg or Xenia. While we encourage volunteers to sign up in advance, anyone may stop by during business hours to see if help is needed.
